Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Safety Florida

6'0 tall 210 lbs projected 40 in the 4.4-4.5 range. Solid tackler that takes good angles and does a nice job making a play on the ball in the air. Plays mostly in the box but I think he could play center field with his recognition and if that is his true 40 time. Projected to be a 2nd to 4th round pick.

Best name in the draft.


2 int's against Michigan in the Peach Bowl.

The Draft Network's Kyle Crabbs believes Florida DB Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is the second-best safety in the 2019 draft class.

Gardner-Johnson vastly improved from 2017 to 2018 according to Crabbs. In 2017, "His discipline in coverage and his tackling skills in one on one situations in the open field" were notable weaknesses. In 2018, "There was patience, balance and confidence in wrap up situations. He was able to key quarterbacks in underneath zone and found himself constantly floating around the football." Crabbs still ranks Delaware's Nasir Adderley at No. 1 but Gardner-Johnson is firmly at No. 2.
After going through tight ends last week, I shifted to safeties. I am still weeding through some of the top prospects, but spent Thursday reviewing Gardner-Johnson, who I really, really like. He is not a perfect prospect, but a very talented player who runs sideline to sideline, and is not afraid to hit. Really smart football player. Played heavily in the slot last year. I haven't completed my eval on him, but he is a top 50 talent for sure. I have him as S1 right now.

Agreed he's not perfect but he's damn good. His form tackling is textbook which is something our secondary could use.


Great awareness and ball skills



2:11 good range
Just seen him mocked to the niners in the 2nd, obviously we are all hoping for Earl Thomas to be signed but if not, he would be a nice pick, every Florida game I watched it was him and Polite who flashed the most..

That's what I was gonna do in my mock draft. I do think Thomas is going to be a Cowboy end of the day. Getting a good FS is really really important. Bosa in the first CGJ in the 2nd would be nice. Wouldn't complain about Devin Bush in the 2nd either both would help with our pass defense.

Yup I don't feel like there is a huge difference between Gardner-Johnson and Deionte Thompson who everyone seems to have as their unanimous number 1 S prospect..

I like CGJ better than Thompson and he doesn't have off field concerns that I'm aware of. But I admit I watch every player on Alabama with a grain of salt due to the dominance at every position but I do think Bama players are the best coached players in the country hands down.
